Elvis Presley lives! One teen’s “Blue Christmas” cover proves the country and rock and roll legend is still alive — inside of him, at least. Listen for yourself and decide if all other Presley impersonators should just retire right now.
David Thibault was recorded singing this song at radio station CKOI in Quebec. It’s a French language Top 40 station, but they still recognize greatness when they see it, and they still recognize the King. It’s not even clear if the teen speaks English, but he sure speaks Elvis.
A few doubters wonder if the video is a fake, but Thibault’s slip on guitar coincides with a muff on the mic, proving the performance is real. It’s not clear who provided the “Ooh, ooh, ooh” backing vocals, but it’s safe to assume it’s the deejay.
The “Blue Christmas” cover went live in December of 2013, and has amassed over 13 million views since.
Elvis Presley would have turned 82 on Jan. 8. He passed away at the age of 42 on Aug. 16, 1977, leaving a world full of heartbroken fans behind him, as well as a musical legacy that will never be equaled.
